Teaching Approach

Here is what I view as the best recipe for a successful learning experience: mix a strong motivation with an efficient methodology, and add a good relationship between the student and the teacher.

1) Motivation: there are many motivations that push people to learn French, and understanding the goal(s) of each person is essential to me, as it represents the starting point of our collaboration.

2) Efficient methodology: I believe that each student has a strong potential and my role as a teacher is to find the best methodology for each individual, in order to develop this potential. For this reason, I don't give standard classes, but I rather adpat the content to each situation and person.

3) A good relationship: my attitude as a teacher reflects my own temper as a person - I believe in the power of encouragements, in the magic of positivism, in the necessity of resilience. I feel very involved in the learning of my students, which is why I prefer to work with motivated students.

So, are you ready to start learning ? :)

The combination of the home assignments with auto-correct and the assignments that we discuss during the class is great. And while my level of French is still low, I dare to speak with Jeanne and it works:)

I really like the fact that Jeanne customizes homework for you. The way of explaining the grammar starting from the examples and then making you derive the rules based on the examples makes better understand and memorize the grammar rules.
